I like it with the scarf, interesting colour mix, a bright effect.
I'm not convinced by the second picture, the sweater is fine (with the jacket), not sure about the shirt and tie. (But don't forget i'm too classic sometimes.) smile.gif  

Well when I bought it I was wearing that outfit, minus the tie, along with a pair of dark navy Levi 514s and my Solovair boots. I couldn't believe how 'right' it looked with all the dark blue, including the shirt, open-necked. It even looked right with the boots!

The tie was just an experiment, to see if a bright, clashing red would add anything to it.

RIP, both of them

Struggling to identify him. William Burroughs, perhaps?

Opinions?

Nice jacket, DAKS housecheck I think - keep meaning to have a look around DAKS sometime. Agree it doesn't work with the dark shirt, but something brighter like you said.

Just wondering if it fits your bill. JCM is a relative newcomer to suede but certainly a worthy convert and certainly knows his stuff

interesting you raised the issue of Lovat green I had two v necks from RL one in green marl, one in pink. Still got the pink one and wear it, moths got to the green. Looked great with jeans, blue trousers or grey. Pesky moths....


Thanks for the link Cleav.  Yes, very nice indeed.

 

I have a PRL v neck in silver pine marl which is somewhere between the old  style Lovat green and the old petrol blue marl I keep on about.  Very versatile too.

Now I think it does work with the dark shirt. But then, dark navy just suits me anyway.

By the way, this is the DAKS house check.

I happen to be wearing my DAKS housecheck cap today and  I happened to take some pics as I am pondering this weeks FC - wear your scarf.  Give it a go chaps.

 

 

Talking of Lovat green, this is the scarf I bought at JS when we had our November meet-up.  Details below:

Guys, I decided to chuck my cap into the ring:)  Why not have a go and show the CM guys how it is done?  Cheers.

 

Edit - Monsieur is in!

I have found the last weeks postings interesting,looking at Mr Knightleys picture with herringbone jacket,cords and suede shoes and M-o-M check jacket with v neck and tartan tie I realise that its more than colours,its patterns ( checks,paisley etc ) and textures ( if that's the right word for corduroy and suede and tweed).

 

I am a bit odd ( and I admit it ) in that I feel one pattern or texture or bright colour is enough at any time,that Pitti Uono just has to much going on,bright colours and patterns it seems to disorganised to me,much like when I see a student going to breakfast in whatever clothes they found on their bed room floor.

 

Maybe that's another reason that I don't like the Harringtons that have the tartan lining showing,it clashes with other clothes.

 

Wearing a check or Tweed jacket I would have a plain shirt,plain tie,plain trousers,maybe bright socks but I would probably struggle with Brogues and definitely not Suede,probably Plain shoes or boots.

Again a stripe shirt would be THE patterned item,or a Paisley tie.

So for me 1 patterned item or 1 'textured' item,or 1 brightly coloured item, and that is just my way of looking at it,I am not saying that I am right just that's how I feel happiest dressing.

I am well aware that others will see my ideas as boring,as I said though I am enjoying looking at other peoples way of doing it.

On the other hand, until you experiment you never know what goes with what. smile.gif

I don't think there is anything odd or boring about any of that. Restraint is good as long as it is not total. To my mind the look has a background that can tone light or dark but is fairly flat in texture, subdued in colour and vanishing in pattern, a good background to accent a single loud colour/pattern/texture (though I think a clash *of that one item* is allowed, or maybe even desirable).

Haha...last few days I was thinking of a pullover pretty much that colour for the summer - think brighter!

Really nice age appropriate three button suit, and beautiful colour.  You see quite a few older 'mods' that is in their 40 + years squeezing into really narrow lapels, skinny ties and strides and it normally looks a bit 'desperate'

Thanks mate.  It is actually a blazer in what my tailor (himself an old mod) calls a 'true navy'.  It has smokey MOP buttons to give it an understated look.

 

For me, re-enacting 1969 is not on.  Too much like costume.  Desperate as you say!

Just resurrected a piece of dormant grey matter from 1969 ! Peter Wyngarde "Departement S" and an Anglo French connection Inspector ;)
